IETA’s broad representation ensures that sectoral and regional points of view are shared and taken into account. We closely monitor market developments. We share key analysis, policy and market design information with our members as they happen. IETA members learn about new opportunities and understand the impact on their business.
IETA members come from all corners of the world, representing every existing carbon market as well as those under development. They include industrial operators, verification bodies, project developers, investors, carbon standards, traders, brokers, lawyers & consultants. Our work is undertaken through a framework of permanent and ad hoc working groups. IETA is a recognised observer of the UNFCCC. IETA members may apply for accreditation to various climate negotiations as part of the IETA delegation. We maintain strong partnerships with World Bank, OECD, IEA, IATA & other multilateral organisations.
Our affiliate, the International Carbon Reduction and Offset Alliance (ICROA), promotes a code of best practices for voluntary offset providers to assure quality service in carbon management and offsetting.
The Business Partnership for Market Readiness (B-PMR) holds business-to-business dialogues in new carbon markets to share best practices. The B-PMR aims to turn policy vision into corporate action and commercial success.
Markets for Natural Climate Solutions is a new IETA initiative working to create global markets for carbon credits generated from Natural Climate Solutions (NCS). Its mission is to maximise private sector investment in NCS to ensure it plays the fullest role possible in delivering the goals of the Paris Agreement.
